4:06 am
enemies in between all the signatories of the deal minus the us has called us tensions sore between iran and the west the european parties have been trying to keep the deal alive after president trump withdrew from its last year in the past one month but it was several developments. regarding limitation of. some of there was regarding. you know the doctrine of. commitments which reported by the. i.a.e.a. and also we have some complaints about. you know properly implementation of the methods by the other side i mean the europeans in particular. after the meeting iran accused britain of breaching the nuclear deal by seizing one of its oil tankers of gibraltar earlier this month to iran says under the agreement it's entitle to export oil without any impediment but britain says the iranian tanker was in breach of international sanctions last week a british flag tanker was impounded by iran in the strait of hormuz in an apparent

retaliatory move u.s. president donald trump's description of baltimore as a disgusting rat and rodent infested mess has prompted an angry retort from the city's biggest newspaper the baltimore sun hit back at the comments which were directed at african-american congressman elijah cummings with a stinging editorial it read we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the oval office a mockery of war heroes the gleeful grabber of women's private parts the serial bankrupt of business is the useful idiot of a team of pollution and the guy who insisted there are good people among murderous neo nazis that he is still not fooling most americans into believing he's even slightly competent in his current post or that he possesses a 2nd teller of integrity better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood and to be one well democratic presidential hopeful elizabeth warren has described
4:08 am
president trump's tweets as disgusting i want you to come it's one of my dearest friends. he is a good man through and through and he fights for what is just in this country to be attacked by a president. issuing racist tweets is beyond insulting just just. roselyn jordan is live for us in washington and rosen obviously we would just reflecting on the stinging rebuke from the newspaper in baltimore but what about reaction amongst people residents inside baltimore itself. well it seems almost to a person people who have been speaking to the national and the local media on sunday are disgusted and outraged by what the u.s. president donald trump has said about their city they all said that yes the city has problems but what community doesn't have problems and they also said that
4:09 am
baltimore has what any american city should have which is diversity economically racially religiously and that there are efforts to make the city a good place to live and all of these people said that they were proud to live in baltimore even if they had lived anywhere else in the world so there is a real sense that the president should not be attacking their hometown in order to score political points well for his part the acting chief of staff at the white house is trying to defend what the president said this is mick mulvaney who is the acting chief of staff staff at the white house to push back against what the president sees as an actress is lies about what mr cummings said this week in the oversight committee about the border if you go on the internet you can find the exchange where a lie she coming said the children were sitting in their own feces at the border that's wrong in fact it's misleadingly wrong it's the type of thing that really
4:10 am
breaks down a civilized debate about how to address the the crisis at the border and the president didn't like it as a president speak hyperbolically absolutely and we've seen this type of of reaction for him before yes and you will again because he pushes back he fights back when he feels like he's attacked or what mr coming said this week was wrong. it appears that the reaction to president. gaining traction is this the end of this back and forth exchange. well unfortunately it is not the end of this back and forth in the last 45 minutes the president donald trump has again taken to twitter and basically has doubled down and i'm paraphrasing here but he basically said that he didn't say anything wrong that most people would agree with him that eliza cummings who is the chair of the house oversight committee has been not doing right by the members and the people who live in his congressional
4:11 am
district or doing right by the city of baltimore writ large he is not backing away from what he said and he is saying that democrats are now playing what is called here in the us the race card in order to criticize him for making his initial comments about a largely cummings on saturday so you can probably expect there will be pushback to this latest comment on twitter in the next several hours thank you from washington rosen jordan with the latest on that story moving to other developments in guatemala hundreds of protests against a controversial immigration deal between the government and the u.s. demonstrate has rallied in front of the presidential palace in guatemala city against the equipment between president jimmy morales and washington on friday protest as off warning him to resign over this deal which was signed off to president tom threatened to impose on the bottom ali it means that migrants passing
